>> Ackerman: [Music] I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at the Toshiba Portege R705. Now there's really no such thing as a perfect laptop, but this guy hits a lot of the right notes. It's a 13-inch laptop. It's part of Toshiba's Portege line. Now if you really like a lot of the previous models, like the R500-that was a 12 inch laptop-for this version, they bumped up to 13, the same size as the basic 13-inch Macbook, while keeping the price down and keeping the components pretty good. This version has an Intel Core i3 processor in it. There's actually an industrial version called the R700 rather than the 705 where you can get Core i5 and Core i7 processors. This one's got the Core i3. It's got a 500 GB hard drive, and it's got a bunch of cool extras, like Intel's wireless display technology which lets you connect the video output from this laptop to, let's say, a big screen TV. You need to get a $99 external net gear adapter for that, but if you want to just send your signal basically to wireless HDMI, that's a great way to do it. That's only built into a handful of laptops so far, and this is one of them. But for about $899 or even $799 on sale you get a 13-inch display. You get the solid magnesium outweigh construction. It's got an accelerometer on the hard drive, so it'll park the head if you drop it or jostle it too much, and of course you get an SD card slot, an E setup port, and an HTMI port, all things you're not going to find on the $100 to $200 more expensive basic white Macbook. The keyboard is a basic island style similar to what you find on a Macbook or a Sony VAIO. The touchpad, it's about as big as anything we see on a 13-inch laptop except of course for the Macbook. Because you've got a mix of decent components, really good price, and nice high-end design, this is very likely going to end up being one of our favorite laptops in 2010. I am Dan Ackerman, and that is the Toshiba Portege R705. ^M00:01:49 [ Music ]
